Microsoft shared the news today in a community blog post (via The Verge). The new unlimited device access will be for Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscriptions. Previously, subscriptions were limited to 10 devices across five users for Home and one Mac and one iPad for Office 365 Personal.
Starting October 2, subscribers can install Office on an unlimited number of devices—and be signed into their accounts on up to five of those devices at the same time.
Microsoft is also increasing the user limit from five to six along with the unlimited device update for Office 365 Home. It touted its cloud storage for each user as well.
we’re increasing the number of licenses in a Home subscription from 5 to 6. That’s right: we’re adding an additional person to the subscription with no change in price. To be clear, that’s 6 people with their own license and 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage each—for a total of 6 TB.
